“A hidden jewel in the NC mountains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Make sure you skip lunch the day you plan to have dinner at the Chef's Table in downtown Waynesville. Chef Josh Monroe is a talented chef who serves huge portions of amazing food. I had the Pork Rib eye which was not only amazing, but I was only able to eat about half my meal. I asked our server if I got a free t-shirt or at least my name on their wall if I could finish the entire dinner. My wife had lobster ravioli which was also excellent. if you want to have a great meal, severed in a quaint restaurant by friendly servers and a talented chef, then the Chef's Table is your top choice in Waynesville.

“Very romantic place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

The food here is very special. We had a very romantic and special evening for a birthday celebration. The tuna was done to perfection. There were many interesting choices and the atmosphere was very pleasant.

“Great food but out of several entrees”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Although our meal began with the waiter indicating that they were out of three of the entrees (2 of which would have been my first choices), we had a fantastic meal. I hope someone on the wait staff did not show up because one waiter was handling the whole restaurant. Even overwhelmed, he was very efficient and attentive and apologized each time he came to the table for any delays. The biggest problem was that he seemed so harried and rushed. We kept assuring him everything was fine, and we overheard another table encouraging to "chill out" because everything was okay. One doesn't go to a good restaurant planning to get in and out as quickly as possible. Still, his anxiety was a disruption to having a relaxing meal.

“Chef's Table is a Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Eating at the Chef's Table in Waynesville is always a treat! The food is delicious and the wine and beer selection is great. Presently one of my many favorites is the Deconstructed Lasagna. Reservations are recommended since it is a small restaurant.
